Watermelon Raspberry Party Punch brings a party to life with this flavorful fresh fruit and peppermint punch. This recipe has No added sugar. Perfectly ripe pureed fruits with a hint of mint make a delicious, completely natural, summertime party drink.
You may remember, if you follow our blog, that I had an impromptu birthday celebration for our five year old granddaughter recently. Her sisters, cousin, auntie and I got together and decided to bake her these adorable cupcakes from Aliyah’s Simple White Cake recipe.
We always get busy in the kitchen when the Martin girls visit here. Aliyah brought along her Cookbook for Girls by Denise Smart. She loves this recipe book. It was a gift to her from her aunty Kayti. Many yummy junior cook recipes in there.
This fabulous punch recipe was in that book. We made punch and cupcakes for a fun quick party for Milla. She was very pleased to help make the treats with her sister Lainy. Aliyah picked the raspberries all by herself and was involved every step of the way with this punch and the yummy cupcakes too. I have the best time with our grandkids!
I doubled down on the raspberries in the recipe. We loved the watermelon with raspberries. The big surprise is how refreshing the mint leaves are in this drink. The oranges make a pretty top. I did add the remaining orange into the punch too. I should have peeled the rounds before adding them in. The rinds were a bit bitter in the punch.
Letting this punch set overnight REALLY improved it. So that make this recipe even better. Make the punch ahead, even overnight. Chill it without the ice cubes and garnishings until serving. When you serve simply stir in the ice cubes and garnish the top of the punch if desired.
This is a thick pulpy punch but it’s easy to drink and ALL the kids loved it after the flavors developed overnight. The mint leaves really make a difference!

Recipe NotesMake this recipe ahead so the flavors have time to blend. Chill it until serving. The time to make this punch is 20 minutes or less. But the chilling time is up to you. You may serve this punch immediately if you prefer or chill it for improved flavor and your convenience until serving time. To make this into an adult beverage add vodka in your desired amounts.
